Course Details

Even the most frequently seen conditions in oral pathology may be diagnostically challenging to clinicians who do not encounter them with regularity. This presentation will help in the identification of both common innocuous and more seldom seen but clinically significant lesions, including atypical presentations that vary from classic textbook pictures.


The hands-on portion that follows is designed to allow general dentists, specialists, residents, and students to feel comfortable performing uncomplicated soft-tissue biopsies under local anesthesia in out-patient settings.

Learning Objectives
  • Prepare a diagnosis of the most commonly encountered oral infections, immune-mediated diseases, and tumors
  • Develop management strategies including pharmacologic treatment
  • List indications for biopsy and alternative diagnostic procedures
  • Compare and perform punch and scalpel biopsy techniques
